On the one hand, the women nominated for outstanding actress in a drama for the 2013 Emmy Awards play a diverse range of characters: a DC fixer, a country singer, a CIA operative, a motel owner, an advertising copywriter, a nonprofit exec and an English gentlewoman. But they are a lot alike too. These are all strong, smart women we think we’d like to have on our side in a fight. The question is, if we had to choose just one to have our back, who would it be?
What a charming name for a ball. The 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball took place at Cipriani’s, New York, and Sarah Jessica Parker really took it upon herself to dress accordingly, looking like a very convincing snowflake in a white silk, cut-work and feather trimmed Louis Vuitton dress — part of the same collection Kate Moss closed earlier this year. Looking at lot more slinky were Uma Thurman and Angie Harmon, who nailed it in a skintight green dress and a shimmery halter gown, respectively.
Other celebrities included couples like Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle (who also looked great in a red gown slit high up the thigh) and Mark Ruffalo with his delightfully named wife, Sunrise. Vera Farmiga, Zoe Kravitz and Natasha Bedingfield were also spotted, the latter two wearing color-blocked black and white. To check it all out, click through our gallery below.

The media is going gaga over Sunday’s Golden Globes, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, people. Do the Globes have Nick Jonas & The Administration as its house band? Do the Globes have Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman presenting an award together (spoiler: expect something memorable)? Are John Krasinski, Amy Poehler and Death Cab for Cutie paying tribute to John Hughes at the Golden Globes? True, the Globes have funnyman Ricky Gervais as its host, but is he as easy on the eyes as funny girl and CCMA host Kristin Chenoweth? Of course not!

The nomination-heavy trio of Up in the Air got dolled up for the National Board of Review Gala last night in NYC. Dueling for Best Supporting Actress at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards this Friday, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick donned entirely different looks for the glamorous affair. Farmiga went with a form-fitting LBD while Kendrick got frilly in a pastry-esque ensemble. Which award season darling looked best? [Photos: Getty Images]
Leading man of Up in the Air George Clooney was just down the carpet with his gal pal at his side. Elisabetta Canalis has become a mainstay on the Cloonster’s arm, accompanying him to another industry event again last night. We must say, the two make a gorgeous, and visibly smitten, pair.

The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards isn’t known for drama. It’s known for its uncanny tendency to predict Oscar winners. That’s why Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman presenting an award together at the show might feel like a wolf pack of two casing a herd of fenced-in sheep. Need we remind you that “Good Morning America” recently cut an upcoming Adam Lambert performance after his same sex AMAs kiss? Remember Sarah dissing both Paris Hilton and Hollywood at the MTV Movie Awards? Now we have two of America’s most provocative mainstream personalities on the same stage at the same time talking to a captive group of Hollywood’s elite. And we haven’t even mentioned that Tracy Morgan is also presenting!
Additional higlights of the show: Nick Jonas & The Administration will serve as the Critics’ Choice house band; special tribute will be paid to recently deceased director John Hughes by John Krasinski, Amy Poehler and Death Cab for Cutie, which will perform “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from “The Breakfast Club”; and Kevin Bacon will be presented with a philanthropic award by no less than Meryl Streep. Additional presenters include Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Emily Blunt, Cedric the Entertainer, Bradley Cooper, Rob Corddry, Abbie Cornish, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Vera Farmiga, Heather Graham, Ed Helms, Samuel L. Jackson, Ken Jeong, Tobey Maguire, Amy Poehler, Craig Robinson, Zoe Saldana and Susan Sarandon.
Hosted by Kristin Chenoweth, Critics’ Choice will air live on VH1 Friday, Jan. 15 at 9:00PM ET. Check back here as we live-blog the show with our partner sites, including AOL’s Moviefone, The Envelope, The Huffington Post, BestWeekEver and fashion experts Refinery29.

George Clooney would appreciate it if you’d take his romance with Elisabetta Canalis seriously. Sure, he’s been enjoying on-and-off affairs with countless beautiful ladies following his 1993 divorce, once claiming he’d never marry again. But the Italian model must mean more than most to the superstar, or he wouldn’t be posing at Up In The Air‘s LA premiere with both Canalis and his mother, Nina Warren Clooney. This might be the one, guys…if he and mama hadn’t posed with then-girlfriend Lisa Snowdon at the Ocean’s Twelve premiere five years ago. Dude better hope Elisabetta doesn’t find out about that.
Also attending the fete were Clooney’s co-stars Anna Kendrick, Vera Farmiga, Jason Bateman, Danny McBride, Melanie Lynskey and Zach Galifianakis, as well as well-wishers like Cindy Crawford. Watch them shake their Oscar-baiters in the gallery below.
